    Hello,

    I have a question, i am trying out the CloneDVD with ANYDVD trial. It is taking at least 60 mins to CREATE a dvd file, is this NORMAL? If not, what am I doing wrong? It seems like it is reading the DVD in real time?

    I used to copy and pass copy dvds in 15-20 mins with DVD XPRESS.

    That's not normal. I can do everything in 30 mins at the most.

    Speed

    There are read and write speed options in CloneDVD. What speed do you have those set for?

    I have changed media, I/O cable and burners (same model just different units) nothing seems to work. I am using Verbatim 8X DVD+R and DVD-R. Both have the same times of 60+ minutes to complete the burn phase. I have altered my burn speed from 4X, 6X, 8X and maximum, and nothing seems to change the speed.

    Speed

    A lot have been talking specifically about a read speed problem with the Plextor PX760A. Has your burner preferred speed changed and have you verified that your IDE is set for DMA? That affects speed as well.

    I am using a Maddog MD-16XDVD9-8XE. I have checked everything that has been recommended.

    Firmware

    Do you have the latest firmware update from October '06? http://www.mdmm.com/optical_storage_drivers.php

    The Mad Dog site for some reason doesn't let you see a manual for it so I can't see what options there are pertaining to speed issues.

    Ok, I just went out and bought an external IO MAGIC 16x DVD. Now the read speed is 5 mins. My other machines is an HP Pavilion and it is taking over 60 mins to read and write, although the read write speed is 4/8 it is crazy.

    Maybe the drive is dieing.

    I updated my firmware and am trying again. I just started the process at 8X and the estimated time for 'creating DVD files' on the top bar was 313 minutes that is not a typo 313 minutes. I canceled the process and went back and did a restart and selected 'maximum' for speed and now the 'creating DVD files' is 28 minutes. I will let you know the time estimated when it begins to write.

    How old is the drive and how much is it used?

    It just started the 'write' phase. It began with a 28 minute write time but at the 2% mark the write time jumped to 53 minutes and at the 4% it jumped to 71 minutes.
